Argon Fluoride (ArF) Laser
Matthew Wolford (left), research chemist and Matthew Myers (right), research electrical engineer, both from U.S. Naval Research Laboratory stand in front of an argon fluoride (ArF) laser awaits to be tested with new thicker stainless foils at Washington, D.C. June 1, 2020. Wolford and Myers are testing the (ArF) laser that is being outfitted with the new foils in hope to have higher output of the laser. The laser is the world’s largest (ArF) laser that is studying the physics to develop a high efficiency electron-beam pumped (ArF) laser at 193 nanometers. (U.S. Navy photo by Jonathan Steffen)
